It’s true that these are the same servers that had all the issues in June. Judging by the symptoms, I would say the current issue is also storage related.
But I have not received any information yet from iFastNet as to what is actually going on, how long this may take to fix or whether there will be any data loss.
If you’re OK with having to restore your website without access to your current files (like last time: database are unaffected), moving your domain to a different account is a good way to get your website up in a predictable time frame.
Like I said: I will update the topic as soon as I know more. If I had an estimate, I would put it there.
file mgr goes to ftp login. update 11:30 AM Vancouver, BC, Canada time: just got to the point of uploading a file, then when it got to 100% on the progress bar, error message of “The upload failed: 577 / Monsta exception”. update 11:33 back to ftp login. updagte 11:34 - all good. 11:36 - back to ftp login. 11:37 - sometimes works, but keeps switching. was just able to upload some files, but I get error 404 when try to open new one uploaded today on my otherwise working website. Also was able to click on home button to open web file mgr successfully for a short time. when clicked on refresh button (circle with arrow), got error Argument host must be non zero length-string. Got: “”
Since around 21:30 last night, the website IPs were up again.
I only just got an explanation from iFastNet: there was a storage issue on these servers. A file system check had to be run which took a few hours. Also, more storage has been added to help with the performance issues many people have experienced on this server.
I also had to remove about half of the posts in this topic, and most of the posts since my last message. All of these posts violated the outage communication rules.
Just as a reminder:
If you are not on the listed IP addresses, you are almost certainly not affected by this outage.
If you do not experience ALL the symptoms (e.g.: the file manager doesn’t work but FTP does), then it’s almost certainly not related to this outage.
The topic writes about website IPs. The IP 18.104.22.168 is not a website IP, that’s the FTP server IP.
If you say there is another issue always include the URL to your website. Not every issue is experienced by every website on the same IP. If you say there is an issue with your website, clearly state which website is affected so we can check it and tell if it’s just you or it affects other people too.
